New, 10 comments

Following its 28-24 loss to Houston, USF moves down in the Coaches Poll and falls out of the AP altogether.

NCAA Football: Houston at South Florida Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

The effects of USF's 28-24 last minute loss to Houston were felt in the national polls on Sunday.

The Bulls fell nine spots to #23 in the latest Amway Coaches Poll while being booted completely out of the latest Associated Press Poll.

As you can see, C. now assumes the spot as the highest ranked Group of Five team being slotted at #14 in the Coaches and #15 in the AP.

Also from the American comes Memphis, who moved up to #21 in the Coaches and #22 in the AP.

More importantly, the College Football Playoff committee will release their first set of Top 25 rankings on Tuesday so we'll see if the Bulls are somehow included in those.

Other Notables:

-At the same exact time that USF going down to the wire with Houston, chaos was ensuing all around college football.

J.T. Barrett marched Ohio State down the field to complete their comeback on Penn State. Iowa State set the Big 12 standings on fire by upsetting TCU. Sparty messed around and got clipped by Northwestern in three overtimes. CHAOS!

-Georgia pummeled Florida 42-7, a win that earned them a spot at #2 in both polls and got Jim McElwain fired.

-BEDLAM is this week as #8 Oklahoma battles #11 Oklahoma State for Big XII supremacy...until they meet about a month later in the Big XII's unnecessary championship game, because that's totally going to happen.

-Hey look, Arizona is bowl eligible and ranked #23! Rich Rod saved his job...for now.
